Feb 24, 2017 Entertainment Comments Off on Taiwan sees driest winter in over 50 years
This winter has been Taiwan's driest since 1963 and the second driest on record. That's according to the Central Weather Bureau on Friday.
Lower rainfall than usual for the time of year has been reported around most of the country. Tainan and Kaohsiung, the two largest cities in southern Taiwan, saw no precipitation in January; Kaohsiung has yet to see any rain so far this year.
The northern port city of Keelung, well known locally for its usually rainy weather, has also remained mostly dry this year. The only weather station to record plenty of rain was in the northeastern county of Yilan, in December.
The Central Weather Bureau also says the dry weather patterns could continue into the spring. The Water Resources Agency has warned meanwhile that water levels at three reservoirs in northern Taiwan have dropped dangerously. The military has dispatched planes to carry out cloud-seeding in the hope of increasing the amount of rainfall.
